Methylphenidate is a drug of choice for treatment of attention deŞcit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Here, we report a 14-years old girl with diagnosis of ADHD, major depression and conduct disorder. During her treatment with methylphenidate 20 mg/day and şuoxetine 20 mg/day, she developed visual and auditory hallucinations. Her hallucinations disappeared after cessation of methylphenidate.
Further trials with methylphenidate caused hallucinations which were immediately disappeared after discontinuation. It may be concluded that methylphenidate in some case may cause hallucinations in patients.
